Visuddhimagga XI-106

354. Sabhāgavisabhāgatoti evaṃ avinibbhuttāsu cāpi etāsu purimā dve garukattā sabhāgā.


Ñ(XI,106): 8. As to the similar and dissimilar: and although they are unresolved (inseparable) in this way, yet the first two are similar in heaviness,

Tathā pacchimā lahukattā.


Ñ: and so are the last two in lightness;

Purimā pana pacchimāhi pacchimā ca purimāhi visabhāgāti


Ñ: but [for this reason] the first two are dissimilar to the last two and the last two to the first two.

evaṃ sabhāgavisabhāgato manasikātabbā.


Ñ: This is how they should be given attention 'as to the similar and dissimilar'.
